Not too much has happened this week. It really has been a fairly chilled week. Some of my friends headed out yesterday for the beautiful coastal town of St. Malo, but I chose to stay since I've already seen the town. Plus, this morning I am meeting my famille d'acceuille and going to visit a winery! I'm very much looking forward to that.
Yesterday, after finally handing in my papers for the carte de sejour, I spent some time reading in the library for a presentation on Tuesday. Why I chose to present so early, I'll never know. At least I'll get it over with! Now I just need to research some more and figure out what I'm going to say. Sunday and Monday, meet presentation!
After that, I went on another excursion to the grocery store to find items needed for mac and cheese, which I will be making tonight and peanut butter pancakes, which will be devoured tomorrow. We will be documenting both endeavors, but particularly tomorrow morning, since I've never actually made pancakes before. My dad makes really good pancakes, so I've never had to! Oh yeah, and we found Maple Syrup. All brands were products of Canada, so we'll find out if they taste like real Canadian Maple Syrup!
We also found this frying pan, which is shaped like a bear's head and made me pretty happy...
I am finding myself starting to relax in the midst of a culture that never really seems in a hurry the way that North American culture is. I've always been incredibly busy, but over here things just seem to go with the flow. And I'm beginning to be able to go with the flow as well!
More later today about the winery and mac and cheese fiesta!
